I am going off memory here so I am hoping somebody else has some experience. IIRC, the 98 model Yamaha R1, while fast, was a complete handful to ride. Has anybody here owned one and if so, what was your impression of the bike and its manners.

No it handled great compared to other 1000's, with a shock and forks done.

Mine handled great 'till I tossed it in Big Bend - total loss
